    I have been working at Otto's Pub and Brewery part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Relatively good money for state college. Check averages are decently high with most clientele tipping 20%. Staff is friendly. Usually very busy. Free shift beer.

    Cons

    Seniority is a pretty big deal. Schedule is literally ordered by hire date with best shifts generally at the top of the list and the worst at the bottom. Lots of grey areas with rules -- one manager will be fine with something while another scolds you. Limited freedom to eat or take smoke breaks while on the clock (during a long closing shift for example).

    I worked at Otto's Pub and Brewery full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The job was ok. The pay was decent. The beer is good. The food was good. Until they started making the line cooks pay for it.

    Cons

    As in most restaurants, there is very little respect given to the back of house. They are looked at as mostly disposable.

    Advice to Management

    Show a little more respect to the back of house people. They keep your place going, and do it at a lower pay than pretty much everyone else in the company.
